Shalom, Nurse

So I had no idea my family was so… Jewish.

Secularly Jewish, at least.  I went to a baby naming for my dad’s cousin’s son (no idea if that means I’m related to him) today, and like 15-20 people there were immigrants from Israel.

But the Winger side of my family is huge.  My grandpa was the youngest of 12 siblings — and they all had kids — so I have no idea how many people I’m related to.  Kip Winger, for all I know.  I met relatives today I have never seen in my 18 years of being a Winger.  It’s weird.

I’m going to have to start quizzing people on family history when I meet them just to find out if we’re long-lost cousins.
